She's home!

Picked up Juliette at Romney Cycles on Friday. My Bandit must've known something was up that morning 'cause she wouldn't line up with the damned chock on the trailer for nothin' at zero-dark-thirty in the morning. Cranky old wench . . .

Anyway, I've got the Glee home safe and sound and have started adding all my mods and gadgets. BTW, what's with that big honkin' key?? I could till a garden with that thing! Should also come in handy when the zombie apocalypse hits, too!

I'd forgotten how light the 650's are. What a huge difference from my Bandit and my FJR. Feels like I can chuck it around the garage with no effort at all.

Okay, gotta get some more tinkerin' done. Ya'll take care!

Bahaha!! Yeah, I know . . . I'm being remiss by not fessing up some pics. Gimme a day or so to finish adding my gadgets and I'll get some out.

"Great rack" . . . way too funny!

I hear the rack is plastic on the new ones.

They look great but feel a little funny.
